    The first question you have to ask yourself: what kind of maps do you want to make? For you personally? For a game? A book? What style? Informative? Artistic?
    Only then can you start to look for the right tools.

    For starters, I can only point you to the tutorial section of this great forum. Look around, try a few things and ask if you get stuck.

    But the most "beginner easy" way to start mapping is the real old-school version: take out a pen and paper and start doodling!

    This is probably one of the best if not the best resource you'll find for Fantasy Cartography, which I assume you will be doing.
    Also, I second what Freodin said, that's most important.
